G.E. M/W....M# JVM2070SH01

1 post in this topic

Got the unit apart.....Unit has three plastic buttons.... They push another button on a small board, ( key module p/n WB07x10725 )...........  small board is held in place by two small plastic fingers on the control panel sub-assy ( p/n WB07X10733 ).............

One of the small plastic fingers broke off of said control panel.....I sez, " No problemo, stylish American woman, I will get ya a new control panel ordered up"..........Get back to the office and found said part.....After picking myself off the floor and rechecking the price,........... About 400.00 clam$.....Control panel only........

I inform the customer, after she gets up from the floor , she said "I want some light to cook by".....O.K. 

Plan 'A'...Replace panel, P/L $575.......

Plan 'B'..New O.T.R. unit  P/L $475.......

Plan 'C'.. new counter top M/W unit and a new vent hood..P/L $ 480.......

OR I tell her, I got a Plan 'R'...Let me try and fix the broken panel......

O.K.  she sez. "Fix-It"....

Take panel back to the warehouse work bench, which happened to be a chest freezer that day......

Found some parts, did some drilling..DSCF2102_zpsd010ff2d.jpg
